GUPD and Metro Police arrest Leavey Center robbery suspect
A suspect matching the description of one of the two muggers that robbed two Georgetown students at gunpoint has been arrested, according to an email sent to the Georgetown community by GUPD Chief Jay Gruber. The suspect, who was apprehended by GUPD around 5 p.m. Friday, allegedly committed the robberies Wednesday night. One student was robbed outside the MSB building and the other was robbed on 31st Street, around the corner from the Georgetown AMC theater.
According to Gruber’s email, the suspect was “found in possession of the weapon used in the campus armed robbery,” a silver revolver. He’s now en route to D.C. Jail after processing at MPD’s 2nd District Station.
